UNCW is a division one school but out the first round of the CAA tournament with a disappointing season once again..I know CFCC is a junior college but they are doing better things than UNCW..why not feature their sports a lot more? Div 1 schools are looking at Junior Colleges for players now..CFCC has a lot of great talent on their team..GOOD LUCK GUYS!!!!!!!!
